Lake Mburo
Good stopover on the way to Bwindi
Boat trips on Lake Mburo
With 370 km², Lake Mburo National Park is a relatively small park. Lake Mburo, located in the middle of the park, forms a wetland that includes a 50km long swamp area and 14 other lakes, that are all supplied with water from the Ruizi River.
The park is located halfway between Entebbe and the Bwindi National Park and therefore often serves as an attractive overnight stopover on the way to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and the mountain gorillas.

Lake Mburo is the only park in Uganda with eland, impala and klipspringer. It is also home to the largest population of zebra in Uganda estimated at about 5,000 and probably contains the highest concentration of leopard found anywhere in Uganda. Buffalo, waterbuck, topi and warthog are also very common. Reedbuck and oribi can be spotted in the open valleys. Hyena, genet, bush pigs and white tailed mongoose are often seen on night game drives.
